This announcement was sent to all of our Railfan Canada subscribers in December:

December 18, 2013

To our valued Railfan Canada Subscribers:

It's with a very heavy heart and personal disappointment that we inform you as a subscriber to Railfan Canada magazine that we can no longer financially justify printing and distributing the magazine.

Without going into the details, I'll just say that the Internet is a mighty tool in today's society. It has significantly changed the way in which we communicate. Things have changed rapidly over the past few months and years as the Internet has developed. The printed word that you can hold in your hands and read is becoming obsolete. Just as film disappeared with the invention of the digital camera, printed matter is on the block now, too. Recent announcements by Canada Post regarding significant postage costs and delivery have not helped either.

However, all is not lost. We have 'married' Railfan Canada magazine with our sister magazine Canadian Railway Modeller which has been streamlined to include railfan articles in its content. We will substitute it to fulfill your subscription to RFC and trust this is an acceptable solution to our circumstances.

The staff and those associated with the production of RFC are very disappointed that the magazine was unable to continue in its original form. We wish to thank our valued article contributors for the wonderful articles they took the time to prepare for our readers. And a big 'Thank You" to the retail outlets and hobby shops where the magazine was available. Our advertisers deserve a special credit, too, as they helped us pay the bills.

This has not been an easy transition for any of us. Should you have any concerns, please let me know either by telephone or e-mail. Yes, I'm very sorry it has come to this and it broke my heart when I realized we were unable to continue. We had a good run at it though, and we are all very, very proud of each and every issue we managed to get out. We sure had fun!!!

Publishers Note:

It was with bitter disappointment that we announced that Railfan Canada magazine had to be discontinued due to the proliferation of the Internet and everything that is now 'free'. Social media and all things associated with it is quickly forcing print media to struggle to survive, especially niche magazines like this one.

But, magazines can survive if you are prepared to support them. That will inadvertently mean a slightly higher cost for something that you can hold in your hands and turn the pages over, one-by-one. The alternative is turning pages using a mouse or your finger. A printed magazine is a tangible item and something you can pick up over and over again to read through; the alternative is viewed on a liquid crystal display screen which once read, is clicked off and stored somewhere on your hard drive. To view it again requires you to go though the steps necessary to retrieve it and find the pages you want to look at. It just seems so much easier to 'thumb through' a printed magazine. Well, you'll have to make that choice.

Our hobby in general is going through some very tough changes right now. We are determined to keep the printed version of a Canadian model train magazine as an alternative to not having a print media publication about our great hobby. To do that we require the support from subscribers, hobby shops and advertisers alike. It is in your hands to determine our future - and yours too!

To honour what we achieved and what we are so proud of, we are leaving this page of Railfan Canada covers up so everyone can reflect on what was accomplished through the support of those who believed in what we were doing in the 12 issues (3 years) that we had with the magazine. Editor, Suzanne Lemon, put her heart into each and every issue and thoroughly enjoyed working with her contributors. And I always felt a feeling of euphoria when the issue was printed and I was on my way to mailing it at the main Winnipeg postal depot. It was time to begin the next one!

Back issues of Railfan Canada magazine are available exept for Volume 1 Number 2 which sold out quickly. Single copies are $12.00 each (which includes postage) or multiple issues can be ordered at a 15% discount to compensate for the postage.
